Book List

This list is mainly  from the website called Society of Janus, although i have added some titles to it. It has some excellent educational material on the page for people trying to find their way in BDSM. I would advise anyone just starting out or just wanting to learn something new to visit.

Also remember, if you have a kindle you can download samples of many books. Also if you do not have a kindle you can download a Kindle Reader to your smart phone or computer.

There are many informative BDSM books that are not fiction, and this is just a sampling that leans heavily toward classics. Most are available on Amazon. You can buy the books new or used and some on Kindle on Amazon. You may also be able to find them used on EBay.
